  • Produce structured solutions and alternatives as part of the program design efforts of the Structuring team
  • Renew reinsurance programs, meeting with clients /reinsurers as needed to learn their needs and maintain strong relationships
  • Design new programs for clients’ needs, placing business with client-approved reinsurers
  • Stay abreast of accounting, regulatory, and market developments / regulations that influence the supply and demand for structured (re)insurance solutions (e.g. Solvency II)
  • Maintain contemporary knowledge of industry loss and exposure trends that impact the supply and demand for structured (re)insurance solutions while also influencing the underlying analysis of the portfolios in question.
  • Model the probability distributions of the gross/ceded/net underwriting results of an insurance company client based on an actuarial analysis of frequency and severity focusing on a large losses
  • Analyse how the distribution of results and relevant risk measures change as a result of application on various proposed reinsurance alternatives
  • Utilise cost/benefit analysis to advise brokers and clients "optimal" reinsurance programs based on risk tolerance level
  • Support the business’ efforts in market creation and other projects requiring actuarial expertise (e.g., cat exposure modelling).

If you’re still reading (which I’m sure you are), this is the part about you…


Ideally, you will be commercially focused with;
  • Strong technical expertise in reinsurance, experience and exposure ratings, reserving, loss distributions, reinsurance terms and conditions, and simulation modelling; with data management, financial reinsurance, risk management, catastrophe modelling
  • In-depth understanding of the product lines and the global and regional industry conditions to identify significant considerations that insurers should address in designing their programs
  • Excellent interpersonal skills for establishing and maintaining good client, market and internal relationships
  • Strong ability to identify client needs and access and organize resources including senior management, to deliver solutions which meet or exceed client expectations
  • Broad knowledge of world reinsurance markets to comprehend range of products necessary to address insurers financial needs.
